M2 Machines announces new “Drivers 101″ line
M2 Machines recently announce a new line of lower priced 1:64 scale models that will likely grab more of the “impulse buy” crowd than their previous releases. In order to reach the lower $2.99 price-point, the line sacrifices some of the more detailed features like opening doors & hoods, metal chassis and jeweled headlights and taillights found in the Auto-thentics and Detroit Muscle lines. However, features like detailed interiors, hood options, rubber tires (both stock and new larger versions) and the same excellent quality tampos will all be a part of this new direction for M2.
Three excellent muscle-car casting have been selected for the initial release. They include the 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302, the 1968 Plymouth HEMI Cuda and the 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge. Each casting will be available in two different color variations as shown below. There will be one BOSS 302 chase piece packed into every master case of 48.
As you can see in the photos, the rear of the card will contain a fun car-related technology tip that will educate young enthusiasts and keep their interest in cars and die-cast collecting alive. Drivers 101 will be exclusive to Target stores and select hobby retailers starting in August 2009.
